At Oakhill we are a ‘Healthy Eating School’ and we encourage children and parents to make healthy food choices.
The lunchtime period is 12.15 to 1pm. Children collect their pre-ordered lunch from the serving area and choose their dessert. After eating they clear their trays before leaving the hall to play outside.
As part of the school ethos we expect the children and staff to conduct themselves with manners and be courteous to others. We encourage the children to remain seated whilst eating. We would expect them to eat the savoury part of their lunch before eating the remainder. We encourage children to eat using their knife and folk where appropriate.
We have a number of lunchtime supervisors who support the children during the lunchtime period. They will encourage the children to eat their food and report any concerns to the class teacher who will in turn share these concerns with you.
We recommend lunchboxes have a variety of foods your child will enjoy but avoiding chocolate and sweets. Children deposit their lunchboxes on the sandwich trolley when they arrive in school. The lunchboxes are refrigerated during the morning.
Dolce are our catering suppliers. We have a rolling three week menu which is displayed in each classroom.
